The Q&A Archives: Shenandoah Switch Grass

Question: I planted this grass last spring/summer and it looked great. In the fall when it turned brown, I cut off all the dead foliage, which was all of the grass. Today, it still looks like it did when I cut it back. When should new foliage emerge if it is still alive?

Answer: It may still come back as temperatures warm. I'd give it more time. Generally, it's best to cut back grasses in late winter/early spring just before new growth would start.
